Professor: Carol de Wet
The course focuses on stratigraphic principles and sedimentary environments through examination of depositional systems. We study the petrology and petrography of sedimentary rocks and derive interpretations from field and laboratory analysis. Prerequisite: GEO 221
Towards the end of the Sedimentology & Stratigraphy course we hold the annual Triassic-Jurassic Rift Basin Symposium during class and laboratory periods. Each student presents their research, based on field observations from the local Gettysburg Basin, literature reviews and petrography from other rift basin sedimentary successions (Fundy, Hartford, Newark and Culpeper Basins).
